Frank Tendai Mushonga (39) who is a supervisor at the Gweru South tollgate was arrested for allegedly stealing $11 000 collected as toll fees.
Mushonga pleaded not guilty when he appeared before Ms Mildred Matuvi facing one count of theft. He was remanded out of custody on $100 bail to January 31 for continuation of trial. State witness Mr Malvin Moyo who is the acting Route Operation Manager for the western region toll gates told the court Mushonga as supervisor for the Gweru South tollgate signed for the money he received from cashiers which he was allegedly supposed to bank.
The court heard that Mushonga collected money that had been collected by the toll operators from August 2017 to June 2018 in order to bank the money for the company. Mushonga allegedly violated a trust agreement expected of him and deposited $38 000 in Gweru South Intertoll Zimbabwe Company’s bank account instead of $49 000 that was collected.
